    This is bullshit, I know we all have our political differences, but to escalate to this is totally wrong.

    I think the blame can be put directly on the Mayor.. He allowed for this to happen by holding the police from doing their job.. Sad that someone lost their life .. Then of course he goes on CNN and blames Trump.. You just cant make this sh*t up..

    It is a huge travesty that the young girl died.Hard to digest all sides this quick,other than the usual of blaming Trump.
    Both sides containing Racist scum promoting their agenda,that's what our country has come to.
    Both sides should be equally blamed,it takes two to tango.
    Why would anyone with a half a brain want to be involved in this sort of confrontation???

    Although I fully understand what they were protesting { the removal of a Confederate statue} I beleive this whole thing was a setup.. A New York police dept representative was asked if this would occur in New York and he said no as they would not allow the two sides to interact and they would keep them apart..I believe the mayor of Charlottesville allowed this to get out of control ..Now they are denying it.. I believe the Mayor is responsible for the death of that young woman.. And the deaths of those Troopers that were killed when there helicopter crashed..

    As the ideologies clash.....the police state and militarization of the police force is that much closer to getting the public approval it needs to poor money into the hands of those who would benefit...from a Police Industrial Complex just like the military Industrial complex.....excepting the weapons gained by that will be used on our own.....and as the business gains power......more and more will be on the wrong end of the police.....because those making money will want more money...

    Keeping them apart as crazy said is done in NYC....that would've been a good thing.

    The driver was a total lunatic......bad situation......and evil move.....most probably.

    People went looking for trouble and they found it.


    I don't think this is gonna get any better...It's gonna get worse before it gets better...if it ever gets better.

    We have the white nationalists on one side..who's main focus is the jews.......and the communist type ANTIFA, who are most probably funded by George Soros...born a Jew..............the same type of conflict which existed in Germany before WWII.

    Neither will back down. Rough roads ahead.

    Although it seems the majority of America...or the media.....might want to wipe out or silence the group who had the permit.....I think that is wrong.....they shine lights on things their opposition refuses to shine light on.....and their opposition holds much power...and have for many years.....and look where it has taken us......they should not be silenced.....their opposition does the educating, the reporting, the buying of politicians, the entertaining......everything.....and only they have the spine to bring it out in the open......and silencing them is wrong..........If diversity is the name of the game.....then those who favor diversity should allow them to be who they are. As long as they are not physically hurting somebody.
    I don't like the KKK..I'm Catholic and they hate Catholics..
    I don't like militant type anything let alone...neo-nazi's or skinheads...i'm not into weird short military haircuts, tattoos, combat boots....going around in groups and thugging people....giving the Heil hitler sign.....artwork or symbols signifying I am in some kind of white group...other than my st benedict crucifix ( which I wear sometimes and is a Catholic thing not a white thing).
    i'm not a supporter of the Confederacy for they had slaves, wanted and eventually got free trade......wanted trade relations with the world...favored farming over manufacturing.....so the rebel flag ain't my thing either.

    But I do like and appreciate some of the stuff that their groups have the nerve to put out.....I think it's important for our nation....
    I'm white and some of it is important to me...just as black lives matters stuff may be important to blacks....or other groups might be important to Hispanics....or other groups might be important to jews.....etc.........I'm kinda ticked that they didn't get to speak....because some of it may not be as bad as media makes it out to be......they had a permit and should've been allowed to speak.....just like groups who oppose them get to speak...Do they show up to disrupt everytime their opposition has a public gathering....most probably not....do they shut other groups dwon and stop their speaking? Most probably not........Their opposition has the ears of students and TV watchers and radio listeners...and music listeners and movie watchers...and magazine readers........daily.....yet these people are broken up EVERY time they want to speak anymore.....and to me that is wrong.
    That does not give the right to be violent and definitely not to kill.......but it's gonna get worse if they keep being treated differently than all the other groups who might oppose them......it seems they went decades without ven being heard from.......yet they were not silenced...just ignored.......ignored may be better than forced into silence....the forcing could bring empathy and sympathy, more anger, more violence......and grow the numbers anyways...


    There's been whole organized media and political propaganda to put the world against muslims.and many other political figures of the world.they propagandize for wars and even our elections.........so the media has no business telling any other group which groups can be propagandized against and which groups can't and who can or cannot do the propagandizing.

    Here is what our Union had to say...

    America Must Stand Up Against New Wave of Racism, Anti-Semitism

    “The Teamsters were saddened and disgusted by the behavior of hatemongers this weekend that resulted in the deaths of a woman standing up against them as well as two others who were involved in protecting the safety of all those present.
    “In the face of such ignorance and malice, all of us must speak out and show unwavering resolve that makes it clear that all Americans are entitled to the same rights and protections, and that those who try to impede them will be dealt with swiftly and forcefully under the law.
    “This union has long been a leader in fight for civil rights. It was more than 52 years ago that Viola Liuzzo, the wife of a Teamsters’ business agent in Michigan, was murdered by members of the KKK in Alabama while standing up for equal voting rights for African Americans. She was a martyr in the fight for justice. Tragically, Ms. Heyer joined her and became one herself on Saturday.
    “It is time for this madness to stop. The Teamsters pledge to stand up against such despicable acts of hatred and intolerance. Only then will we truly become the great nation we all expect us to be.”
